4 Ditch the Rest

4 Ditch the Rest

What do you do with the stuff that’s not Wildly Important?

The answer is that you forget about it!

Ditch it. Throw it over the side. Don’t do it. It never gets done.

And for the avoidance of all doubt, we’re not saying any of – reschedule, postpone, delegate, reprioritize or any similar words. The stuff that isn’t Wildly Important never gets done.

Now, while this may seem like a very radical idea, it really isn’t. If you have too much to do and not enough time to do it, it’s clear that some things will never be done.

All we’re doing here is taking a more active role in deciding what gets done and what doesn’t.

So what do you actually have to do here?

Happily, nothing.
